Pros and Cons of Slatwall Fittings for Retailers

When it comes to retail shelving, there are a lot of options on the market. One of the most popular is slatwall fittings. Slatwalls panels come in a huge variety of configurations, making them perfect for customizing your store. But they are just one option for retail shelving. What makes them stand out and what makes other options better for certain stores? Here are the pros and cons you need to know.

Pros of Slatwalls

Slatwalls are some of the best shelving for stores that want the fittings to be invisible. They make a great backdrop for products and don’t draw attention to themselves in any way. They are also so easy to customize that they can be used for wall shelves, hanging rails, basket displays, and so much more.

Slatwall fittings are also very durable and strong. They are generally made with aluminium inserts to make them even stronger. And they come in an array of finishes, patterns, textures, and colours. You can get slatwall fittings that look like bricks, brushed aluminium, and many other textures.

Cons of Slatwalls

However, there are a few cons to this type of fitting. They aren’t always DIY friendly. Experience may be necessary to get this type of fitting installed correctly, which can add time and money to the entire experience. Another issue is that they aren’t as easy to transport if your store location ever moves. They can be expensive to ship, and can usually only be shipped via box trucks.

Are Slatwall Fittings for You?

Those few cons aren’t a deterrent for a vast majority of retailers that want the most versatile type of store fitting they can find. If you don’t think that your store location will be moving any time soon, and having the ability to create a custom display that highlights your product is important, then this is an excellent option.
